Editorial Reviews

With awesome weaponry and big-hearted style, NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal unleases a "Shaq Attack" of heroics and humor in this jovial action/adventure based on the popular DC Comics characters.

Justice. Safe streets. Payback. Metallurgist John Henry Irons (O'Neal) vows to claim them all when a renegade military reject (Judd Nelson) puts new superweapons in dangerous hands. Helped by an electronics wiz (Annabeth Gish) and an imaginative scrap metal worker (Richard Roundtree), Irons becomes Steel. Wearing body armor, wielding a fearsome electrohammer and riding a gadget-packed motorcycle, he's ready to wage war...if he can fix the untimely glitches in his untested gear. "You all be cool now," the good-guy hero tells two crime victims he rescues. There'll be a lot of thrillin' before Steel himself can start chillin.'

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This product is expected to play back in DVD Video "play only" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shaq Attack! June 6, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love the 'Steel' comics and even though this film isn't 100% faithful, it was still fun. Don't get me wrong. It's terrible. But it's so good-hearted, I found it endearing. It's like watching one of the 'Ernest' movies. Show it to your elementary-age children. I'm sure they'll like it. For Superman fans, I must say this film is better than 'Superman IV' and script-wise, even better than 'Supergirl' though with a much lower budget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now on DVD. May 29, 2011
Format:DVD
I have not seen the DVD but I do own the VHS. Transferring my review from there with a few updates and modifications. Still stands.

This was a solid movie. Too much garbage comes out today that is "critically acclaimed." With $16 million they did a nice job with the sets, filming of action sequences, and special effects to make this movie far more than watchable. A little chessey or even corny at times but VERY entertaining. There are solid moral lessons that are taught here that the youth of today need to see, understand, and embrace.

Shaq's acting, contrary to popular opinion, is pretty good. he's at least as good as Jordan in "Space Jam."

It's very easy to root for STEEL. A man's man.

Kids, especially young black kids, need to see strong black men take control of their lives and make a positive and lasting impact on their families and their communities. Most of the people who reviewed the VHS movie here on Amazon.com probably just don't care about that aspect of it. Consider that if and when you review.

Buy it or borrow it. It's nice to own a movie that has has a true Good Guy/HERO who whips the bad guys in the end.

Bunk to all the naysayers. See it for yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, clean fun! March 11, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I know, how can a movie starring Shaquille O'Neal be taken seriously. Well let me tell you his acting is not bad. They do not try to overdo his size in this film. I never read the Steel comics (it's aDC character while I'm more of a Marvel guy!) so I cannot attest to whether it sticks to the comics storyline. Bottom line, if you take this movie at face value you'll enjoy it. It cannot keep up with movies like Iron Man, Captain America, the Avengers, or even Man of Steel. Those films have much larger budgets and more top rated stars. I have no qualms about adding this movie to my collection and I don't believe you will either.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Awesome movie. March 10, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie when it was a new release back in 1997 and thought it was a great movie then, and since everything went to DVD I have been looking for a copy on DVD. Now that I've got one I expect to have to order another copy in about a year because I've worn out the one I have.
